Life is a roller coaster with a variety of ups and downs. It is not going the way you want to or maybe you are just in a rut. Boredom, job dissatisfaction or just nothing to look forward to in your future. You are just basically existing and not living. Now at this point in your life, you can do one of two things. You can keep on doing what you are doing and just wait to die. Or you can take control and reset your life. Please do not use your age as excuse because it is never too late to change your life. I started a difficult new career at age 41 and 15 years later, I couldn’t be happier. Trust me, there were plenty of struggles(still are lol), but I do not regret my decision. I would have regret if I never tried. So take a chance and reset your life. What do you have to lose?!

  1. Change your attitude. I always tell people; your attitude is everything. It directs the course of your day from when you wake up in the morning to when you go to sleep at night. It is the ruler of all things that happen in your life. Nothing consistently good has ever happened for a person with a bad attitude. It also affects the energy that you attract. Nobody wants to be around a person with a bad attitude. It is draining and just outright unpleasant. On the other hand, a person with a great attitude is a magnet for people. People are naturally drawn to this person and want to be around them. They are positive, vibrant and always make everyone feel good. Let this person be YOU. Wake in the morning with intention of a good attitude and see where it takes you.
  2. Figure out what you really want in life. In life, a lot of people wandering aimlessly in life. They have no idea of what it is they really want in life. They are existing but not really living. Whatever you job, ask yourself, what else would I rather be doing? If the answer is nothing else, then you are one of the few who have figured it out. But for those who have something else in mind, then it might time for a change. You may want to start a new hobby, you may want to get a new job, you may want to elevate socially or you just might need a change of scenery. Whatever it is, figure it out. Devise a plan and get to work. It will not be easy, but it will be worth it. When I wanted to get into commercial real estate 15 years ago, I wrote down a list of 15 to 20 companies and contacted them all. Three of them gave me interviews and luckily one of them hired me. And the rest as they say is history. But if I hadn’t taken a look at my life to figure out what I wanted, none of it…
